Exploring school options for next year? Check out Friends Community School. Friends Community School is a K-8 Quaker progressive school that engages and inspires young children through adolescence. Located on 17 acres in nearby College Park, FCS offers a diverse, welcoming, and inclusive community, a commitment to educating the whole child, and a curriculum that emphasizes child-centered and hands-on learning.
On any given day at FCS, you’ll witness the many ways learning and growing happen inside and outside the classroom. Kindergarten students might explore story elements through puppet show performances or dive into math while baking pumpkin muffins, while others in the Lower School learn about climate change, investigate the recycling habits of our community, rehearse for a musical performance, or study the guinea fowl that roam the grounds. Middle Schoolers, meanwhile, might do a deep-dive into map studies, hone their annotation and writing skills, discuss the importance of empathy, or calculate speed and acceleration in one of our science labs. Follow FCS on social media (Instagram: @friendscommunityschool, Facebook: Friends Community School) for more snapshots of learning.
If you are interested in considering FCS for your child, join FCS students, parents, teachers, and administrators for an upcoming Admissions event. Event details and registration can be found on the school’s Admissions/Visit FCS page of their website.
